What are hard line breaks?
Hard line breaks basically mean that you have clicked "Enter" in the middle of a paragraph instead of letting the text wrap freely. For example, instead of:

"My dog's name is Spot, he loves to run around and play in the water"

Your paragraphs may show up as:.

“My dog's name is Spot,

he loves to run around and

play in the water"
